priority of the united states is to maintain the safety of the united states. i will not cut the military by $1 trillion. which is a combination of the budget cuts the president has as well as the sequestration cuts. in my view, that is making our future less certain at less secure. >> this is not something that i proposed. it is something that congress propose. it will not happen. the budget that we are talking about is not reducing our military spending, it is maintaining it. governor romney has not spent enough time looking at how our military works. you look at the navy for example. we also have fewer horses and bayonets. the nature of our military has changed. we have these things called aircraft carrier's warplanes plan of them. -- where planes land on them. we have shipside go underwater and nuclear submarines. this is not a game of battleship where we are counting ships. it is, what are our capabilities? when i sit down with the secretary of the navy and the joint chiefs of staff, we determine how we will meet our faith with our troops. making sure that the veterans have the kind

as president of the united states! [cheers and applause] i have seen too much pain, seen too much struggle to let this country get hit with another round of top-down economics. one of the main reasons we had this crisis is because big banks on wall street were allowed to make big bets with other people's money and governor romney wants to roll back the rules we put in place to stop that behavior? that's not going to happen. that is not going to happen. [applause] one of the main reasons record surpluses under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen.

[applause] when one person defiantly refuses to be relegated to second class, we are all elevated. t
there will be changes in the united states senate, if tim is in, he will be in there for the same folks he's campaigning for all of these years when he was chair of the democratic national committee, ignoring the needs, dire needs of people in virginia. i want to see change in washington, those positive, constructive ideas that can get this country going in the right direction. i believe we ought to get united behind the mission of sending a message to the world that america is open for business again. i think that anybody who pays taxes should be on our side unless you want to pay higher taxes. if you use electricity, you ought on our side. if you want more affordable electricity. if you drive a car and don't like the fact you're paying over $30 more every time you fill up, you ought to be on our side. if you agree with me doctors and patients ought to be making health care decisions rather then panels of bureaucrats up in washington, you ought to be on our side. if you're working for a living or if you want a job, the approach i have been advocating has proven to work. over 300,000 net new jobs create
security threat to the united states and to israel. that's why i authorized the most crippling sanctions one country has ever eleven individual against another against iran. the results of that we just saw in news reports this week their currency devalued by 40%. the shipments of oil dramatically reduced hurting their economy. those sanctions i co-authorized is to create an economic news to deter them from seeking nuclear weapons. so i believe these sanctions still have time. it is been suggestioned the time clock is sometime next year. if these sanctions cripple their economy, i think we can deter them. >> well, that all sounds just fine but unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the sanctions are working. too little, too late and it's a very critical time for our country and for the world at large. and so i know that as a member of the senate, i'm going to do everything humanly possible through my vote, through advocacy and in every other way to make sure that iran never, never gets a nuclear weapon. this is the greatest threat to our country and to the world. and i just hope that the f
ago you told the "desert sun" that it was in our best interest that the united states remain in both iraq and afghanistan. last months you told the veterans that if president obama couldn't outline a clear and concise explanation of why troops remain in afghanistan, then the u.s. should "get the hell out." what prompted such a change in perspective, and if the u.s. pulled out immediately, how do you address concern that the enemy will fill the void? >> let me go back to a little bit more thorough reporting than that. and the article is there. but what i did say is as long as president obama cannot articulate to the american people why we are there and what we are doing, but allowing our troops to flounder because he feels comfortable because he has given a timeline for withdrawal, that troubles me greatly. under this presidential leadership, yes, i am concerned about our troops being deployed in afghanistan, absolutely. but you know what else troubles me about this timeline of president obama's, which is an arbitrary political timeline? he didn't get that from the generals, he got it
opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighting efforts led by the then-senior virginia senator. when someone who will fight and that is what i will do is your next to none state senator. >> if mr. allen, your opening statement. >> thank you. it's much better future than what we are having to endure these days. that is why i put forward a detailed plan. my blueprint for america to get an economy and stronger jobs. the question is which one of us can be accounted upon. you may have read an article that was comparing our two governorships. the call me when the most accomplished modern governors with major improvements in public education, safety, welfare reform, a
that create it. the pictures show how different the conditions are in the united states. in manhattan is perhaps the densest in the united states. and in wyoming on the other side where there is the lowest population. in new york city, the level, we would not even have a skill because everybody would be high up. the cost of the infrastructure per customer would not show much variation. has a broad band gap. more in tuition. here's a comparison of the united states and it shows how different we are from other large prosperous countries and why we have a challenge that maybe some other wealthy countries don't. in india the population density is almost 10 times that of the united states. in europe it's about five times that. then there's the u.s. one of the country's less dense than the us is canada. for the most part, the united states is at the low end of the density scale. that's why in some ways we have a peculiarly american problem. then we have new jersey and rhode island as the most dense states at 1200 people per square mile and new jersey is more dense than india. the state that

citizens. the united states has allowed a situation of people to take refugees status from a tortured. it is not in the abstract. my father was imprisoned and tortured by batista and my aunt was captured by castro. i would love to be part of a justice and we can do that as soon as we do not have a oppressive, up totalitarian regime in chiba. -- cuba. we should change the rules. until that happens, it makes sense to recognize the oppressive regime. it has been longstanding immigration policy that nations that are politically oppressive and people fearing persecution. we have granted them refugee status. >> mr. sadler, is in question. >> we needed for our state. we needed for our nation. we need -- the people coming from mexico here are seeking a better way of life. they are seeking worker and freedom and the american way of life. -- they are seeking work and freedom and the american way of life. i am for a package that involves everyone. it is the only way to get past this and move forward. it is so important. mexico is our number one trading partner. we talk about border patrol and ma

is overseas and not in the united states, they do not have to go to the court for a particular provision. that was what was different about the 2008 statute, because it allowed the government to go forward with communications surveillance for a number of people without having to get special permission for each and every communication. the problem is that for people like the plaintiffs in this case, that meant their communications might get swept up as well, even though they were in the united states by merit of communicating with somebody out there. the merits will be fought out someday, but a couple questions here as to whether or not there is a foreign intelligence exception to the requirement, and the fisa court found that there is. the supreme court has not ruled on that, whether this communication, whether it is reasonable, or if it has not satisfied the requirement, if it is reasonable. the issue is one of standing. the plaintiffs say they have standing because they are being incidentally wiretapped because they are communicating with people overseas. they are having to travel to m
the dependence of the united states on fossil fuels. in 1984, he urged all of our american leadership to understand the complexity, challenges, and the volatility of circumstances in the middle east. i believe america would be a better place had george become president of the united states. [applause] that does not mean his campaign was a failure. far from it. the 1972 campaign opened up a political process. it confused a new generation the belief in what eleanor called the politics of the impossible. it was that kind of politics at george earned the enormous respect, that crossed the aisle, and transcended party lines. and along with it, enormous achievement. there are children today -- and jim mcgovern mentioned it -- the children today in the world living and have better lives because of what george and bob dole did together. [applause] on the surface, george mcgovern and i should be poles apart, senator dole what said. after all, he is a liberal democrat and i am a republican of the conservative stripe. he ran for the senate as i was chairman of the party. i believe our positions
people in extreme poverty and we have illegal revjees that live here in the united states. so what would be your position on the moral obligation of the mexican government to their citizens to the war on drugs that has been going for the last five years? and i'd like to remember what the counselor of the u.n. on security said about repression which means more violence general rates more violence. so what would be your stand on the war in drugs in mexico? >> i have a feeling you're going to be a good lawyer. >> thank you. >> let me say that the drug issue is a big one in mexico and is becoming a big issue globally. last year there was a global commission on drugs headed by former president of brazil. i was on that commission. and the main point in the report was to decriminalation, not legalation, but deation because of the way laws are a plide. it doesn't work. it's got the prisons filled with lots of young people who come out destroyed for having a half an ounce or whatever. and we should approach it through a health issue rather than a brute al reaction. there is also responsibility on
bring you a forum featuring two candidates running for united states senate in arizona. joining us in the studio, just richard carmona. our format is more of an informal discussion. no opening statements or time answers. joining us is andrea kelly. thank you so much for coming in. >> we will start with health care. we know and generally democrats are in favor of tweaking it. this is been an issue that in some cases has paralyzed congress. will there be any progress on this issue. >> when you talk about the peeling it, we're not talking about repealing health care but the president's health-care law, and we should do that. we have to reform health care, but we need to do it in ways that we can deliver health care more efficiently. . we need to do many things. we need to enforce insurance companies to compete across state lines. give individuals the same pre- tax benefits to allow for more portability and make it easier accessdividuals to excee options. >> will there be progress on this in the next session? >> i believe so, certainly. there have been a number of reforms we have wante
, change our tax code to help small businesses and companies investing in the united states, that we take some of the money that we are saving rebuild america. it will be up to the voters what path we should take. will we double down on the top- down economic policies that helped get us into this mess or embrace a new economic patriotism that says america does best when the middle class does best? i look forward to having that debate. >> it is in honor to be here with you. i appreciate the chance to be with the president. congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most romantic place you could imagine, here with me. congratulations. this is a tender topic. i have met people across the country. i was in dayton, ohio, and a woman said, "i have been out of work since may. can you help me?" yesterday was a rally in denver. a woman with a baby said, "my husband has had four jobs in three years -- part-time jobs. he lost his recent job." we lost our home. can you help us?" yes, we can. it will take a different path, not the one we have been on. not the one
beings. but the united states than any other nation, we have to have a border. you don't protect the border and decide who comes and goes, there you are not -- you are not a nation at all. at the center of this is the rule of law. it's one of the essential pillars of american exceptional some. most of the laws that we need are out there and i would add one more to it -- it's called the new idea act. the acronym stands for illegally, deduction, elimination act. brings the irs into the enforcement. this piece of legislation gives the employer safe harbor if they use --- if they use e- legal. hopefully i can finish in the orbital period -- in the rubble. >> what is your plan to deal with illegal immigration while making my way or mad welcoming place for emigrants? >> we need to make sure we secure our borders to make sure we don't have people coming across, guns or drugs coming across illegally. we need to make sure lots of citizens get a first chance of jobs. but we to make sure people have a pathway to citizenship. if someone is willing to die for their country, someone is willing
it very important. and i'm glad i have the opportunity to welcome the next president of the united states. and i know it's cool and you feel the chill but also you feel the momentum of romney being the next president of the united states. [applause] now you folks all know people who voted four years ago for president obama. you know that he promised partisanship and to reduce the deficit by half, that he was going to give us accountable government, that he was going to reduce your health insurance by $2500. today we have would have 5 and 6% unemployment instead of 8 and 9%. that was all part of economic recovery, wasn't it? this president has not delivered on his promised of 2008 and that's reason for him to not be president of the united states. he has not delivered. so it's very clear, america can't afford four more years of obama no, ma'am i cans and partisanship and the unconstitutional abuse of power by appointing so many decars and making so many expective orders beyond the constitution. and we will put america on a new path to a new day with a new president obama, a new president r
in the united states or kill american citizens, we need to have the option to take action against those who would attack us, to defend this nation when directed by the president. for these kinds of scenarios the department has developed the capability to conduct effective operations --we will only do so in a manner consistent with the policies consistent -- and legal framework that the department follows four other dream act -- domains, including armed conflict. that brings me to the second area of focus. responding to the cyber threat requires the right policies and organizations across the federal government. for the past year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d

[cheers] and good to see all of you. so one month. just one month from tomorrow, virginia, you're going to step into a voting booth, and you are going to have a very big choice to make. i know folks in this crowd may have already made some decisions. [cheers] but for the undecideds that are here as well as those who are watching today, i said this before, this is a choice not just between two candidates or two parties but a choice between two fundamentally different visions for america. and today, i believe that as a nation, we are moving forward again. we're moving forward. [applause] after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past 2 1/2 years. [applause] this morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. [cheers] more americans entered the work force, more people are getting jo
"" judge robert bork is a leading figure in antitrust scholarship. he is a judge to the united states court of appeals for the district of columbia and the supreme court nominee and also for many years, a fellow here at the american enterprise institute. george priest will join us by conference call. he is a professor of law and economics at yale law school. chairman ofhe aei's our council economic advisers. he was supposed to be coming down from the cornea -- la guardia and his plane got cancelled. aei was a hotbed of the regulatory research in the 1980's that lead to regulation. it looks like we have a lot of work to do still. but it is good to have george even if just on the phone. also turning us is jeff eisenach. -- joining us is jeff eisenach. he is an adjunct professor at the george mason university school of law and is visit -- and is a visiting scholar here at american enterprise institute. we are also joined by randal picker. he teaches antitrust law at the university of chicago law school. he is the co-author of game theory and the law. here is how we are going to proceed. greg w
in massachusetts i did what i could to elect him president of the united states which i remind you all he did win massachusetts. [applause] i was later an intern in his senate office and i had the privilege to work with the incredible staff he assembled in washington d.c. and south dakota, some of the finest people i have ever known. we weren't related it was just a co-incidence we both had the same last name. but people would tell me they were long-time supporters of my dad. and they always seemed shocked when i told them my dad owned a liquor store in massachusetts. i urged them to keep supporting him. for 35 years i have been honored to call senator mcgovern my most treasured friend and i loved him very much. he was a great man but more importantly he was a good one. he had about him a deenssi, he was generous and kind. he was funny and had no patience for cynicism. he was passionate and principled but not dogmatic or self-right courthouse. he loved his family and friend and faith and american history and a good steak. he loved this great state of south dakota and my god, did he love his count

he's going to win. that's why i think tammy baldwin will be our next united states senator as well. host: as far as wisconsin democratic party, what's their role now? what's your role now in the days leading up to election day? guest: we are getting out the vote. our job is to make sure we've got resources on the ground to get volunteers tout of knocking on doors, doing the phone calls, doing things we know through study and history and experience driving up our vote. so we are going to make sure that people are voting early. you can vote early up until the friday before the election. we got a strong focus on the early vote. we are going to make sure we talk to voters, about the president's positive message to move this country forward, to build this country economically from the middle out. contrasting that with mitt romney's record. it's why i think the president's going to win wisconsin. host: as far as mitt romney and other republicans have talked about the president's lack of a plan for the next four years. the president did put one out there. what do you think of what he's pr
. you hear me? that is what barack inherited on day one as the president of the united states. your president got to work because he was thinking of but like my dad and his grandmother and that is why he cut taxes for small businesses and working families. we have a president who understands that teachers and firefighters should not pay hire tax rates than millionaires and billionaires. not in america.
